just show up

improvised shows where the audience provides the content

Show Up is Peter Michael Marino's critically acclaimed socially anxious solo comedy that's partially improvised and based on the crazy lives of the audience, who also direct, and run set and sound. Plus, there's a party! Directed by Michole Biancosino + the audience.   


If the main attraction doesn’t show up, the kids still want to see a comedy show! So, Pete’s gonna make one up and have the kids (and adults) help write, direct, and design it. What could possibly go wrong?

From Peter Michael Marino, the creator of the critically acclaimed improvised comedy 'Show Up' comes a fresh, fun, interactive twist on the traditional kids show for kids ages 3-10.

Directed by Michole BiancosinO & The Kids. Music by Michael Andrew.

Now playing at The Kraine THeater, 85 East 4th street off 2nd Ave.
